Looking for Leia is a feature documentary film by Annalise Ophelian that explores girls and women who have a deep connection to Star Wars and how female fans have shaped the Star Wars universe.
I came to know about the project through FANgirl Blog’s Tricia Barr, and it’s great to see the diverse group of girls and women (as well as anyone who identifies as such) from the Star Wars fan community being highlighted in a new and exciting way.
In order to move the project forward, Annalise and her crew started a Kickstarter campaign.
“We’ve taken our first step into a larger world,” she wrote soon after the campaign kicked off. “Let’s keep the momentum going, help us tell the stories of the girls & women of Star Wars fandom by sharing the campaign with your fellow fans & social networks.”
Head on over to Kickstarter to support the project and to pick up some awesome products along the way, including the “Ahsoka Lives” limited edition hand printed lino cut made by Annalise herself and various other rewards.
